Course Overview

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have adapted our course delivery to now encompass a combination of remote and flexible delivery methods. This includes easy to navigate online tutorials, video conferencing (classroom simulation) as well as face-to-face practical assessments and work placements – where safe and practical to implement. Our flexible model allows you to continue to study in a safe, guided and fully supported manner with continued access to all learning, personal and wellbeing supports. You will be advised by your facilitator on a case by case basis in relation to practical and work placement assessments, as some flexibility will be required during this challenging time.

This course is designed for those wanting to progress their career in the motorsport industry, such as motorsport mechanics or technicians. Suitable students will be offered the opportunity to undertake work placement and you are encouraged to seek your own work placement opportunities.
